Aircraft Performance Monitoring
Continuously monitor aircraft performance and get an always up-to-date view of the entire fleet health for increased safety and fuel-efficiency. Get notified of abnormal deterioration and get indicators for pro-active maintenance.
Guess less, know more with Aircraft Performance Monitoring
How is your fleet really performing right now? Which aircraft exactly is currently having a abnormal degradation? What are the causes?
Many teams try (and fail) to answer these questions using manual effort or legacy monitoring tools that hit dead ends.
Modern airlines require a modern approach to aircraft monitoring. SkyBreathe® APM helps zoom out to see the big picture and shines a light into all the previously dark corners of your fleet health. It automatically monitors the aircraft performance of your entire fleet, alerts on abnormal degradation, and gives indicators for pro-active maintenance, making it easy to solve problems faster, increase safety, reduce costs and fuel burn.
Analyze the performance trend of a given aircraft or of the whole fleet.
"OpenAirlines listened to us - its customers - and developed SkyBreathe APM model, which is exactly what our company is looking for – highly automated, user friendly and reliable tool, which evaluates APM as soon as FDR data are received.
Smartwings have tested the APM module thoroughly and we intend to use SkyBreathe APM to monitor and optimize aircraft performance […]
In this way we aim to optimize fuel factors used for increasing overall fleet efficiency to a figure close to 1% of savings."
" By using SkyBreathe® APM during the test period we discovered a new vision of our fleet. We've detected the source of increased fuel consumption by one of the aircraft comparing to others. With APM module we'll be able to use more accurate Fuel Degradation Factor in our Flight Planning system to reach the maximum correspondence of the Operational Flight Plan calculations with the real performance of each aircraft and as a result to be more accurate in fuel planning. No less fuel - No excess fuel!"
Frequently Asked Questions
Aircraft Performance Monitoring consists in continuously monitoring the entire fleet’s health and compare it with OEM book values to:
- Update the fuel factor or performance factor in flight planning systems and FMS
- Maintain the aircraft at the highest level of fuel-efficiency
- Identify abnormal degradation and correct it with corrective actions
Benefits are multiple:
• Always up-to-date fuel factor for increased safety and fuel efficiency
• Increases pilot trust in planned fuel figures and thus, they tend to take less extra fuel on board
• Fully automated process (continuous integration of data)
• Zero workload, zero hardware
• Covers all fleet types
• Decisions making based on facts rather than hunches
• Faster time to resolution of aircraft problems, reducing costs and fuel burn
We consistently observe that SkyBreathe APM can deliver rapid ROI in the range of x5 to x20, but this figure depends on your fleet and your current APM maturity process. We’d be happy to evaluate the potential more precisely with you.
